Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Writing tutors in Brentwood, NY
" I currently assist students in Liberal Arts Studies through the Writing Center at the Juilliard School, and I continue to teach lessons in music. My enthusiasm for working with students continues to grow as I meet more capable, intelligent young people who often just need insight into how to tackle the mass of material they receive in the classroom. My background is as a classically trained singer, and I know first-hand the value of seeking the best help to improve one’s skills. I moved to New York City to continue my own development as a performer at the highest level, and I appreciate the will to aspire that this city instills." ...

" It's hard to say which I enjoy more-- literature or science. I enjoy exploring methods of learning that work best with the student and really value their feedback on my tutoring style. I like to be approachable during tutoring sessions so that the student can feel comfortable enough to bring up any questions he/she might have or interject if I am unclear. I don't like to lecture during tutoring sessions- I prefer sessions that are interactive and allow me to glean the student's understanding, preferences, and progress. I enjoy tutoring because I love growing with the students and helping them find what they need to succeed in their ...

"I have worked with eighth-graders preparing for private school entrance exams, have taught Algebra in public school, and I currently teach philosophy at a New Jersey community college. I enjoy helping my students learn to solve problems on their own, think for themselves, and learn the strategies to excel at standardized tests.

"My students have expressed that they appreciate my rigorous, yet patient teaching style. I have high expectations! For standardized exams such as the SAT, test-taking strategy is foremost in what I teach. Problem-solving techniques first, then vocabulary-building and grammar mechanics. Under my tutelage, I have seen students' test scores jump, sometimes by more than 200 points. My writing has been published in various online and print publications and I am a strong writing coach."

" It truly does push you to be your best. In my free time, I enjoy exploring the ever-changing NYC landscape, stumbling about the internet learning whatever it has to teach me, studying politics both as an art and a science, as well as my guilty pleasure of watching the NFL and the occasional Newcastle game. As an HIV vaccine researcher for several years, I was taught many obscure facts and techniques. As a specialist in assay development (making up new experiments), I created even more."

" I believe there are never more than a few silly mnemonics, clear diagrams, or concept reconfigurations between a student and a good understanding of tough material. I’ll be there to find out what works for you! A little about me: After attending Harvard as an undergraduate, I decided to defer law school in order to pursue another lifelong passion, dancing. I am currently dancing professionally with New York Theatre Ballet, but missed the particular rigor of a scholastic environment, and, of course, students! Prior to working for NYTB, I gained additional writing experience as a fellow with the American Constitution Society, a ...
